Turn drum loops into glitchy mayhem. Make basses scream and beg for mercy. Burn anything to ashes. Malfunction is a unique tool for extreme sound destruction.

Warped from inside. This unique effect is based on a special low-pass filter that has been “circuit-bent” - that is, the algorithm has messed up internal connections and doesn’t operate normally. It produces an incredibly characterful, screaming distortion that is full of attitude and puts out various unpredictable but controllable buzzes and noises.

Motion modulation. Malfunction features a very flexible tempo-synchronised LFO with five waveforms, innovative per-cycle random mode and variable smoothness. It can be used to modulate the input low-pass filter, the circuit-bent filter or the output multi-mode filter – letting you easily do complex sound destruction and morphing.

Effectively simple. With its clean colour-coded interface, Malfunction is incredibly intuitive to work with. The logical control layout and responsive graphics make sure you always see what’s doing what without having to ever consult the user manual.

Update 1.0.3:
– Added new LFO waveforms: notch, 3x staircase, 4x staircase.
– Multiple user interface retouches.

Malfunction is not an effects processor for the faint-hearted. Effective sound-masher. Goes from extreme to ridiculous. – Computer Music, 2013
